A new kind of Toy


If your kids are at all like mine
they see you often while online

their favorite thing is immitation
with just a chair and imagination

they have a desk and make phone calls
no matter where the idea falls

So I made this wood computer
it was a "Hit" a perfect suitor

I kept it simple there are no keys
but you could paint them if you please



That is the rhyme I put up with my latest toy. So far I have sold only animals and people figures. Some time back I made the kids a laptop since they wanted one. I decided to see if anyone else might like one. It has been viewed more times in 3 days than most of my toys that have been up over a month! It appears that it is popular item, or perhaps people are just very curious to see what a wooden computer looks like. I haven't sold one yet but it as only been 3 days.

Let me know your thoughts.

Here is the link to the item on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21052403

Noah is so cute. What did you use for the screen?

the screen is just a print out of my own computer screen taped in place.

I picked a screenshot of our family blog so the kids can see a picture of themselves on the computer.

So the computer is still one of the most viewed toys I have but none have sold. I think it is fun to see a wooden computer but people would rather buy farm sets or wooden teethers. which is fine, I am learning what the public like to see nd likes to buy are not always the same thing.
